“We purchased this farmhouse 35 years ago, half a lifetime ago. Back then, I thought: we'll move on in a few years. I couldn't have been more wrong. We became attached to the house, it fit us like a glove. We simply didn't want to leave. Now that we have arrived at a new stage in our lives, it's time for something different, and to let the house welcome a lovely new family. We have already tossed a coin in the wishing well..."
